From Failure to Freedom
DISMANTLING MILWAUKEE’S SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE WITH THE YOUTH POWER AGENDA
This report, released by Leaders Igniting Transformation and the Center for Popular Democracy, reveals the systemic criminalization of youth of color, youth with disabilities, and youth of color with disabilities in schools as one of the most blatant and egregious examples of structural racism and violence in this country. The young people who are most at risk of harm due to harsh policing and disciplinary policies are uniquely situated to lead the dialogue about developing truly safe and equitable learning environments. This report highlights the vision for safe, supportive, and inclusive schools developed by these youth leaders.
